Fayetteville’s Women-Only Duathlon Takes Place on Sunday

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The paved trails at Lake Fayetteville will be filled with racers this Sunday morning, June 11, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. as the City of Fayetteville’s Parks and Recreation Department hosts its duathlon for women. The City urges trail users to stay off the Lake Fayetteville paved trail during race times. The trail will be used as the bicycle course portion of the race.
 
Ladies DU Fayetteville, a duathlon for women, is a 2-mile run / 11-mile bicycle ride / 2-mile run format open to women of all ages and is designed to create an empowering experience before, during, and after the race. Participants have the option of competing individually or as a two-person relay team where one woman runs and another woman bikes.
 
As part of the Fayetteville Race Series, Ladies DU Fayetteville is unique in that it is open to women only. The spirit of the duathlon will be supportive and rewarding. Post-race festivities include live music, raffle prize drawings, and healthy snacks.

Sponsors of Ladies DU Fayetteville include: Moxie Cycling Company, Experience Fayetteville, Einstein Brothers Bagels, Northwest Health Physicians’ Specialty Hospital, Clif Bar & Company, and Highroller Cyclery.

Registration is still available (cash or check only) on Saturday, June 10, from 4 to 7 p.m. during Packet Pick Up. This will be located at Apple Blossom Brewing Company. Day-of race registration is not available.
